Fishing the Great Lakes Tributaries

As with any fall we run a handful of group trips to fish for Steelhead, Salmon and Lake Trout on the Great Lakes Tributaries. Each year we change up locations and groups but one thing remains constant – we have fun. Here are a few fish from this years trips.

Each year the pressure on the tributaries becomes greater and greater. Anglers new and old love to land big fish and get the “big fish pic”

The tributary fishing is not technical at all compared to fishing for wild trout on the Beaverkill, Willowemoc or Upper Delaware River system. My favorite part is the shenanigans in the lodge. This years highlight was Scotties venison chili. Thanks to Hugh who supplied the meat.

Salmon River Fishing Report 1/11/2021

Salmon River NY Steelhead

This past Wednesday and Thursday we did a group trip to the Salmon River. We had air temps 15 to 20 degrees and icy tips both days.

We fished the upper end the first day with 6 hooked and 1 landed. The first day of any trip is usually feet on the ground low risk. We achieved this and were ready for the second day.

The second day we fished the lower end looking for fresh steel. The temps had dropped and the cold was brutal. We each hooked fresh chrome but none to hand. In the picture is Chris with a colored up steelhead.
